A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Double Dutch? Double yes! With a copper-colored coat reminiscent of fallen leaves and a smile brighter than the brightest autumn sun, a day with Dutch is the perfect way to wile away the fall. Worn out and weary from an endless day or week? Dutch’s is the face you’ll want to come home to, full of love, endless understanding, and ready to wash your cares away. At 7 years of age Dutch is right in that sweet spot – the prime of his life, past precocious puppyhood – and now certain and fully sure of himself and ready to give you his world (or, you know, just snooze contentedly at the foot of your bed). One jiggle of my leash is all it takes for Dutch to perk straight up and pad to the front of his kennel, flashing that endlessly long tongue and giving me one happy wag. Out on our walk Dutch does pull a bit on leash so a quick brush-up on manners would suit this handsome gentleman just fine though he does sit politely for treats. Later Dutch comes round for his top priority and that’s pets even nudging my hand with his delicious, wet nose the moment the petting stops. Dutch comes to us as an owner surrender having seemingly known one family all his life. He lived previously with a 14 year-old boy with whom he was relaxed and respectful and also frequently interacted with a small breed male dog with whom he was also respectful and sweet. Fall is already well underway and you’ll want to be sure you’re ready. You’ve got apple-picking, trick or treating, and oh yes lots of snuggling to do. So come meet your new best friend. Dutch is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…

For a New Family to Know Dutch is described as friendly and playful. The owner’s favorite thing about Dutch is that he does not bark. Dutch’s favorite thing to do is play. When the owner is home, Dutch follows him around. Dutch plays with balls and squeaky toys. Dutch has been kept mostly indoors. Dutch sleeps in the bed with the owner’s son. Dutch is free fed Rachel Ray dry food. When Dutch is taken out, he goes on any surface. When Dutch is left alone, he is well behaved. Dutch does not use a crate. Dutch knows how to sit, come here, and give paw. On a leash, Dutch pulls very hard. Off leash, Dutch wanders but then comes when called.
Upon intake, Dutch had a loose and wiggly body. Dutch allowed being collared and all petting. Dutch was trying to play with the rope leash but was better once it was shortened. No behavior evaluation yet.
Details on my behavior are…
10/6: When introduced off leash to a female dog, Dutch rushes forward and grabs her with intent to mount. He is removed from the pen due to the intensity of the sexually motivated behavior.
